Dear Miss Emily:

I'm 19 and my boyfriend is 27. The age difference is not an issue. Recently, I've had this girl tell me she's having my boyfriend's baby. I asked him and he said he doesn't know who she is. She knows a lot about his marks on his body all that type of stuff, and she knows were we live. I've just moved in with him and she knew all that, but he still protests that he doesn't know her. He's asked all his friends if they know her. My head is all over the place. Half of me believes him, the other half believes her. No one will give me a true answer. Before my boyfriend met me, he was a bad player. Now I don't know what to do. Please help me, or just tell me your thoughts on the situation and, if it was you, what would you do. Thank you.

Only a "nut case" would make a claim like this if she hasn't had any involvement with him, and he, supposedly, doesn't even know her. If you really want to get to the  bottom of this, I think you and your boyfriend meeting with her to hash this out would be appropriate. I mean, think about it --  if there's any truth to it, this is going to come out eventually! And if there is no truth to it, you'd think he'd be mad as hell and want to face his accuser!  You don't need to be more involved with him if seven months from now there's a possibility he's going to be a dad, and lied to you about it. At least you want to make an informed choice to stay or go, knowing what could be ahead of you. Often times, where there's smoke, there's fire. If he's not willing to settle this for his own sake, as well as yours, he's hiding something and probably praying a lot.
